Preferred First Name
Murray State University acknowledges that some students prefer to use first names other than their legal name to identify themselves. Beginning with the spring semester, any student may choose a preferred first name to appear on Canvas, course rosters viewable by faculty, and on the People Finder directory.
Students interested in requesting a preferred first name should complete the Preferred First Name Change Request posted at: http://www.murraystate.edu/
It is important to note that the preferred first name will not appear on any legal
documents such as paychecks and transcripts.
